We heard rumors that Apple would be unveiling a new MacBook (or three) next month, but this was largely educated conjecture and there was no way for us to know for sure whether there was any truth to the rumors. Now we know (and knowing is half the battle). It has officially been 100% confirmed that Apple will indeed by announcing a new laptop at MacWorld and the new MacBook “will go on sale a week after MacWorld.”
In terms of details surrounding the new notebook, they’re a little more difficult to come by. Steve Jobs and the rest of the Cupertino crew are staying pretty tight-lipped, but I’m sure industry pundits will have plenty of predictions for us to consider over the course of the next few days and weeks. It’s very possible that January 2008 could see an ultra-portable MacBook of some kind, possibly competing against the Apple-esque Asus Eee PC.
Apple recently held a holiday event wherein all the artists who performed were promised one of the new laptops that are coming out at Macworld. Yes, even the no-name backup singers are getting one. Fa-la-la… where’s mine?
